Gender Pronouns: She / Ella | They / Elle
Fabiola Argueta grew up in unincorporated East Los Angeles and is a graduate of InnerCity Struggle’s youth program, United Students, from Garfield High School. As a student at Garfield High School, she pre-registered her students to vote and door-knocked in the Eastside community, urging them to become civically engaged. Her involvement with United Students began her passion for organizing and social justice when they learned the power of voting uplifted the underrepresented voices of low-income, immigrant, and working-class families in her community. United Students inspired her to pursue higher education and she will complete her associate's degree in Political Science from East Los Angeles College in 2022. While at ELAC, Fabiola has organized around "CSU Access Denied", urging the CSU Board of Trustees to reject changes in admission eligibility requirements that would disproportionately affect eligible black & brown students in California and the Eastside.
Fabiola began a fellowship with InnerCity Struggle's young adult component, Generations for Justice (G4J), in 2020. They organized outreach events and workshops for young adults in the Eastside, and through their organizing efforts, secured the 3rd and Dangler Affordable housing apartment complex. Today she proudly serves as a community organizer for Eastside young adults and ICS' alumni as they continue to build their political consciousness and develop their leadership skills to organize for transformative change.
